Hi, muffins! Guess what? GUESS WHAT? I can see the sky! The sky is blue! I am crying because I just went outside and the sky was blue! And then I checked the air quality, and it was… not terrible! (Other West Coasties will understand — the sky has not been blue for WEEKS.)
I do not even know how to describe the feeling of seeing a blue sky after weeks of wildfire smoke, but it is my sincerest wish that you, too, will feel joy this vivid sometime very soon. A blue sky upon you! And you, and you, and you!

See a comment that needs to be here? Tag me! I’m [at] queergirl.
A blue sky upon us all! Thank you QG.
truly, cleo! <3
thanking all the firefighters who have been working so hard and so grateful for air I can’t see. it took 3 days, but I finally opened windows today. i had to remind myself not to grab a mask to go get the mail. it was nice.
me too! me too!
came back here looking for a little community. feeling pretty sad about the news this evening. hope everybody is ok.
hey msanon! i’m staying off twitter and working on an old song from amelie i’m trying to get right on my keyboard. what are you up to?
sending as much peace as i can create into the universe. i actually started meditating after Heather wrote a piece about how it helped her.
when i lapse from that, strategizing. when I lapse from that, playing with type.
i do not think i am tone deaf despite the many accusations, so i am afraid to send you good vibes for your song out of respect for your efforts.
Thank you for the award queer girl:) Made my evening
Thanks QG. :) I don’t have any further puns to contribute (inflict?) right now, too sad and angry about RBG/Miraculous Mitch’s discovery that he can set a turtle-land-speed record for confirming a new justice in the last year of a president’s term after all. Mostly I feel like kicking things.
I do have a blue sky though, which I appreciate.
Thank you QG and especially @iarrannme who always rises to the occasion.
No one butter !
